Fresno Area Homeschoolers Facebook Group —
Very active secular (non religious, NOT anti) Facebook group created and moderated by me, webmama of FresnoFamily.com. This is the place to be if you’d like to be in contact with the Fresno area homeschool community as a whole. Great place to get to know what’s out there for us, ask questions of veteran homeschoolers and to hear about gatherings and happenings and resources. This is a secular group in that no religious discussion is permitted…however there are plenty of religious homeschoolers on this group. It is a group for everyone.

Badass Unschoolers of the Central Valley — The group you’ll find here is united by a common desire to allow our children to follow their interests, trusting that they will therein learn what they need to know, when they need to know it. Other common themes: attachment-based, peaceful parenting, partnership with our children, a desire to provide rich opportunities for play, and kids who are given a level of freedom that mainstreamers find surprising.
Homeschool Huddle — Welcome to a safe place to share your home school questions and resources. Most of us are based out of Central California, but not all.

As group member Sarah is fond of saying, “Learning happens all the time.” Feel free to share what’s working and what’s not in your home school experience. The more, the merrier!
